Advances in technology have made modern medicine more personalized than ever before, and Arkansas Heart Hospital is proud to be the first in the state to introduce the latest heart rhythm device. Abbott’s Gallant implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) features compatibility with MRI technology and Bluetooth communication, and the device has been successfully implanted at Arkansas Heart Hospital.
This heart rhythm device uses a smartphone app to help streamline communication between doctors and patients. The app provides access to data, device performance and transmission history, which gives patients the ability to take a more active role in their health care. It also allows physicians to continually monitor their patients remotely and helps them identify asymptomatic episodes and patient-triggered transmissions.
“The ability for patients to have enhanced connectivity to their doctors via their device implant and a smartphone app is exciting new technology,” said Dr. Scott Beau, electrophysiologist and medical director of Arkansas Heart Hospital.
We aim to provide the best patient experience for everyone at Arkansas Heart Hospital, and we are excited to see this technology create a more individualized treatment than ever for our patients experiencing arrhythmia.
